The Lown Institute, a nonpartisan thinktank, ranked Fisher-Titus #8 out of 123 hospitals in Ohio in their recent index for Fisher-Titus’ inclusivity, high value care, and community benefit. Fisher-Titus received an overall grade of A+.
To measure overall hospital performance, The Lown Institute Hospitals Index combined scores for civic leadership, value of care, and patient outcomes. According to the Institute, criteria was based on:
- Civic Leadership – combines assessments of pay equity, community benefit spending, and inclusivity to evaluate how strongly hospitals are engaged with improving community health and well-being.
- Value of Care – reflects how well a hospital avoids the use of low-value services, medical services that offer no clinical benefit to the patients and may harm them.
- Patient Outcomes – indicates a hospital’s performance as it relates to their patients’ health and experience of care. It includes clinical outcomes, patient safety, and patient satisfaction.
Data was used from the Internal Revenue Service, Securities and Exchange Commission, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and other databases.
“In an unprecedented time for hospitals and our community while we are facing a global pandemic, it means a lot to us that Fisher-Titus has received this accolade,” said Brent Burkey, MD, president and CEO of Fisher-Titus. “We strive to not only provide high quality care to those we serve, but also deliver value to our patients and employees while working to improve overall health in Huron County.”
